Diavazo Greek Books Interview

Last month, I had the tremendous opportunity to speak with Pavlina Kostarakou, the director of Diavazo Greek Books, as part of the company’s Coffee with Authors series.

It was a great chat about my book, Achieving The Impossible – The Remarkable Story of Greece’s EURO 2004, and the entire writing process.

Back in business

Greetings to everyone! I feel terrible about the inactivity on the site. My hope (and goal) is to be able to get back and blog on a more regular basis.

The last few months have been taken up with life and lots of writing! I’m excited to report that I have recently finished the first draft of my debut novel. Here are a few pics of the moment that I finished:

The coffee cup says it all – the coming-of-age story of two people whose love grows in the small Greek village of Pefkofito.
106k+ words!? Yes, I am long-winded, but that will definitely be trimmed with editing…I hope.

There is still a long way to go to get this ready to send out for consideration. BUT, this is still a pretty big moment as anyone who has put together a first draft I’m sure would say.

In the next couple weeks, I will recapping a few cool things that have happened to me in the last few months, specifically concerning my first non-fiction book, ‘Achieving The Impossible – The Remarkable Story of Greece’s EURO 2004 Victory.

Besides that, I will also have some news of a few things on the horizon. If you are reading those, I hope you will consider following my site (I’ll definitely follow back!) and receiving some of the material I put out. I will be sharing a few sample pages from the book I’m writing and would love the feedback. Thanks again for checking this page out and will speak soon. Take care!
